Nail Trick: Using a Sponge to Apply Glitter

Hi everyone!  Today's extra special unscheduled post is all about applying glitter nail polish.  Like everyone else I have struggled to get chunky glitter polishes to go on my nails in an even coat.  After looking around online in the nail polish community I saw a lot of people talking about using disposable make-up sponges to apply glitter in a thick even coat that actually covered the entire nail. So I couldn't resist giving this technique a try.  I decided to select four different glitter polishes to see how well it worked.  Here are the polishes I selected:

Deborah Lippmann's "Happy Birthday" - Nicole by OPI's "Inner Sparkle" - Color Pop's "Extra! Extra - Hard Candy's "Pop Star"

The four glitter nail polishes I picked out are Deborah Lippmann's "Happy Birthday," Nicole by OPI's "Inner Sparkle," Color Pop's "Extra! Extra!," and Hard Candy's "Pop Star."  I went with a rang of different shaped glitters and glitters in different price ranges.  I figured that would give me the best chance to see how this tip works.  I found the technique worked very well because the sponge soak up the excess clear base and it made me wonder why I had not tired this before!  As for the glitter's shape and size I found the polishes with similar sized and shaped glitter worked bed.  (I.E. Deborah Lippmann's "Happy Birthday" and Nicole by OPI's "Inner Sparkle."

Overall I am very pleased with this technique and I'll definitely be using it in the future to create some fun glittery looks!
